Pop stars in Ethiopia have been belting out tunes marking a victory in what is seen as a battle with Egypt over who has rights to the waters of the River Nile. In June, Ethiopia began filing the mega dam it has been built on the Blue Nile - which could have repercussions for countries downstream. Ethiopians have been celebrating online using the hashtag itsmydam. This has not helped smooth tensions as talks resume between Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan about how the dam is to be operated and how much water will be released in future. Ethiopia's biggest pop star Teddy Afro has released a song seen as a warning to Egypt that it should learn to share the waters of the River Nile. It wants a deal to endorse what it sees as its established rights to 55bcm of water from the Nile a year, but Ethiopia has refused to commit to releasing a specific annual amount from the dam.
